Jonah Prayer Ministry Training Seminar

Saturday, April 26, 2014 - 8:45am - 1:00pm


Two Session training - April 26th and May 3rd.

Jonah Prayer Ministry is a prayer ministry based at the parish level. The goal is for every parish to have Jonah Prayer Ministry or its equivalent. Praying over each other is an excellent way to affirm each other's faith as a community, to let the Holy Spirit heal our hurts and to open our eyes to being thankful for the truth and love in every situation that we experience.  

Jonah Prayer Ministers are people like yourself who are approved by the pastor for this ministry. Ministry members feel the call to pray for others or desire to use their spiritual gifts of prayer given to them by the Holy Spirit.  After training, Jonah Prayer ministers pray in small groups with individuals who request prayer support, maintaning confidence in all matters.  Ministry sessions are scheduled according to individual parish activity and with pastoral approval.

In summary, Jonah Prayer Ministry is another beautiful way that the Holy Spirit can have profound direct spiritual impact both in the parish community and in personal lives.  Jonah Prayer Ministry is about being present to fellow parishioners through prayer and praying with expectant faith knowing God brings about transformation/healing/growth.

This is an archdiocesan workshop to train prayer ministers for ministry in their parishes. Applicants will need the signature of their pastor on the application form.  Call Chris Slattery at 314-427-7786 or email
